It is important that as a community we are ready for an emergency that may require us to leave our homes or “shelter-in-place.” To prepare you and your loved ones for such an emergency build your Preparedness Kit using the Preparedness Checklist (click on the backpack below) and build your own first aid kit (click on the first aid kit below).
Keep these items in a readily available location, such as the closet or beside an exit door where it can be grabbed at a moment’s notice to load in your vehicle.
To prepare your children, here are some activities to teach them the importance of preparedness and get them involved in the process:
- Being Safe After a Flood Activity Book
- Emergency Skills for Kids
- Kids Emergency Preparedness Activity Guide
- Mickey and Friends Disaster Preparedness Activity Book
- Preparedness Activity Book
- Ready Wrigley Prepares for Extreme Heat
On-line activities for your children:
- National Fire Protection Association
